Apple is revolutionizing Manhattan retail

Apple retail revolution

Apple retail stores are revolutionizing the Manhattan shopping experience, according to one report. The Cupertino-based company's SoHo store was followed by the grand opening of its Fifth Avenue location marked by a great glass cube, and plans for a third store are already underway in the Meatpacking District. "Apple went to a billion faster than any other retailer in history, starting from a standing start," said retail consultant Howard Davidowitz. "Apple is the highest volume-per-square-foot retailer in the United States of America. It's like a homerun." Apple stores look and feel less like retail shops and more like lounges with plenty of activities to entertain guests, and most stores offer training sessions alongside other events to keep foot traffic high, according to Resident. Dell recently opened its own retail store in an attempt to echo Apple's success, achieving mixed results after opening the store last year.

    billion?

    What does that mean, "Apple went to a billion"? All the summary talks about is experience and square feet. Since I don't think they have 23,000 acres of floor space yet, I'll assume it means experience. ;) Maybe some kind of Spinal Tap-esque thing... "These go to 11." "Yeah, well we go to a billion!"

    A Billion Dollars

    It means Apple's Retail Stores made their first One Billion Dollars faster than any other business in history.

    It is not that difficult to figure out.

    Buy a clue and then buy a Mac.

    Sheesh

    A little harsh don't you think? "Buy a clue then buy a Mac"? You typing that from your mothers basement, on your Centris 650?

    Tell you what - why don't _you_ buy some manners and etiquette with your next Subway paycheck.

    Fashizzle this!

    Actually I am sending it on my 17" MacBook Pro.

    I haven't lived with my mother in over 18 years.

    And I probably make more money in one month than you do in an entire year.

    So when your unemployment check runs out, call me and I will see if my business is in need of a janitor. We can fire one of the illegals and hire you. but you need to speak Spanish or you will feel out of place.

    Ah, never mind... Guess I need to go buy yet another Mac. My wife won't appreciate that. She may like the clue I pick up, though. ;)

    That post was supposed to include something about the fact that I was having some fun with the poor-context quotes that MacNN sometimes puts in these summaries. I put that in angled brackets, though, so this web site thoughtfully discarded it.

    Lacking

    No grace or charm. Just vulgar.

    boy, aren't we insecure!

    ... and my dog can eat your dog for lunch... and my SUV is bigger and meaner than yours... and I have bigger - never mind...

    Oftentimes I ask myself what troubles these poor characters so much that they feel soooo insecure?

    Spare some tact, big boy; no wonder you provoked such a reaction (mother's basement, Centris...)
